A UK foreign minister ex-solider rushed to the aid of the police officer who was stabbed in the wild terrorist attack at the British Houses of Parliament, giving the cop mouth-to-mouth resuscitation before he died.
A blood-stained Tobias Ellwood, Britain’s Minister for the Middle East, can be seeing kneeling over the officer on Parliament grounds surrounded by first responders after a knife-wielding madman stabbed the cop following a chaotic series of events that left another woman dead and several wounded.
Ellwood said that the officer, whose identity was not immediately released, died at the scene, according to the BBC.
The Tory MP attempted to give the officer mouth-to-mouth and “stemmed the blood flow by applying pressure to the wounds” as he waited for an ambulance to arrive, The Telegraph reported.
A source close to Ellwood told The Telegraph, “[He] tried to give mouth to mouth and stem blood flow from multiple stab wounds to the officer until the chopper and medics arrived”.
Photos of Ellwood from the scene show him wearing a blue suit with blood on his hands and forehead.
Ellwood, a former solider, lost his 37-year-old brother in a terrorist attack in Bali in 2002, according to reports.
